(Note: while some portions of this user tip can be used when installing a new hard drive in your MacBook Pro, it is intended only for those upgrading to a SSD.) There are, with most MacBook Pros (exclusive of the Retina display models) only two modifications that you can make without voiding your Apple warranty or AppleCare extended warranty – upgrading the RAM and upgrading the drive in the hard drive bay. If you’ve already upgraded your RAM and simply want more speed, you may want to consider upgrading your old hard drive with a SSD (Solid State Drive). Many people come to the MacBook Pro forum asking about SSD upgrades, so this user tip is applicable to those, primarily, who have already made the decision to upgrade. Note that I only recommend using a SSD in 2009 and later MacBook Pros with a 3.0Gbps to 6.0Gbps interface speed – and I recommend buying a 6.0Gbps SSD regardless of the fact that models with a SATA II interface won’t be able to use the full-negotiated speed of 6.0Gbps.

SCOTCH REVIEW: GLENMORANGIE QUINTA RUBAN We’ve previously reviewed the Glenmorangie Original, but Glenmorangie is a powerhouse Highland distillery with several different brands and varieties. The other scotches produced under the Glenmorangie label use the same distilling process as the original but are aged for different lengths and in different barrels. Since the 1980s, Glenmorangie has been trying different combinations of barrels to create different and more diverse flavor profiles, and this has resulted in several “extra matured” editions which are finished in port, sherry, or other types of barrels. The Quinta Ruban is one of these, spending ten years in American white oak barrels before being finished in port casks from Portugal. Type: Highland ScotchAged: 12 YearsProof: 92MSRP: $59

Why I Drilled Holes in My MacBook Pro and Put It in the Oven My MacBook Pro and I had a wild weekend: I reflowed the solder on its logic board three times in one day, then drilled 60 holes in its bottom case. Why? I first started noticing heat issues about a year ago. My model of MacBook Pro is notorious for running too hot. 47 Photos That Prove People Had More Class In The Past #1.

The 36 best tools for data visualization It's often said that data is the new world currency, and the web is the exchange bureau through which it's traded. As consumers, we're positively swimming in data; it's everywhere from labels on food packaging design to World Health Organisation reports. As a result, for the designer it's becoming increasingly difficult to present data in a way that stands out from the mass of competing data streams. One of the best ways to get your message across is to use a visualization to quickly draw attention to the key messages, and by presenting data visually it's also possible to uncover surprising patterns and observations that wouldn't be apparent from looking at stats alone. And nowadays, there's plenty of free graphic design software to help you do just that. As author, data journalist and information designer David McCandless said in his TED talk: "By visualizing information, we turn it into a landscape that you can explore with your eyes, a sort of information map.

The New Mac mini is Going to be Ridiculous If you’ve been around the Apple scene for any period of time, you’ve probably learned about two of the best resources out there for finding out more about your Mac: Mactracker and the MacRumors Buyer’s Guide. Between those two places, you’ll learn what Macs you should buy and when, discover specifics about an older Mac and so much more. Heck, Mactracker helped me ID a Power Macintosh 9500 sitting around my friend’s office the other day. Which is why, while watching the recent Apple Event, I started thinking about how long it’s been since the Mac mini has seen an update.

This Brooklyn studio cut an extra piece of wood, then installed it on brackets at the end of the counter to one side.

15 Effective Tools for Visual Knowledge Management Since I started my quest a few years ago searching for the ultimate knowledge management tool, I’ve discovered a number of interesting applications that help people efficiently organize information. There certainly is no shortage of solutions for this problem domain. Many tools exist that offer the ability to discover, save, organize, search, and retrieve information. However, I’ve noticed a trend in recent years, and some newer applications are focusing more on the visual representation and relationship of knowledge. I believe this is in part due to the wider adoption of mind mapping (and concept mapping), and leveraging concepts and advances in the semantic web community. Most traditional personal knowledge management (PKM) or personal information management (PIM) applications offer the same basic set of features:

What's up with the Haswell Mac mini? Apple's June refresh of the MacBook Air saw the introduction of Intel's fourth-generation Core processors, internally called "Haswell." Apple's spent this autumn introducing new iMac and MacBook Pro systems that also use the Haswell architecture (except for the venerable "standard" 13-inch MacBook Pro, which still uses last year's chip). The all-new Mac Pro that's due out in December uses a different processor, so that leaves one lone holdout: the Mac mini. So where's the Haswell Mac mini? Why Haswell? Haswell doesn't really speed up core processing in the Mac as much as it improves efficiency.

36 Excellent Data Visualization Tools Data is always useful but it is not easy to comprehend it when it is not presented understandably. This is where data visualization comes in; there are many tools and techniques of providing data in a way that helps the viewers to apprehend the given data.
